Play this video to hear Dr. Francoise Adan, UH Connor Integrative Medicine Network, discuss the health benefits of meditation and other forms of integrative medicine.
Integrative medicine is founded on the critical and increasingly recognized principle that pursuit of well-being, regardless of the presence of absence of disease, must focus on the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Combining innovative and holistic services and therapies with other medical treatments such as surgery and pharmacology, integrative medicine blends the best of conventional medicine with evidence-based modalities to expand treatment options and optimize patient care.
The integrative medicine approach centers on both the prevention and minimization of disease and the promotion and optimization of well-being. It also seeks to support and enhance the patient’s own innate healing abilities and affirms the vital importance of the provider/patient/client relationship.

Joining over 70 medical institutions throughout the country with integrative medicine departments, University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center is the headquarters of the Connor Integrative Medicine Network. The department was funded through a generous donation from Sara and Chris Connor. Chris Connor is a longtime University Hospitals board member and the CEO of Sherwin Williams. Though based at UH Ahuja Medical Center, the Connor Integrative Medicine Network is a system-wide initiative that serves both UH employees and the community and works hand-in-hand with all health care professionals throughout UH. The result is the integration, rather than separation, of health care for our employees, patients and clients.
The network consists of a coalition of experienced and dedicated health care professionals including physicians, acupuncturists, hypnotherapists, massage therapists, Reiki masters, meditation guides, yoga instructors, reflexologists and life coaches. Distinctive to UH, Connor Integrative Medicine Network aims to promote health and well-being for the providers as well as patients, and offers continuing education opportunities through professional symposiums and workshops.
